do you think will win and clearly governor romney has made progress both in favorable and unfavorable rating and in who do you any is going to win? the more people think the president is going to win, but depending on which poll you look at the gap narrowed dramatically, you must have that be relatively narrow in order to win and that is a sign of momentum and it takes a lot of pressure off the campaign in boston. >> rose: these things have come out of these kinds of polls, number one, who do you think will make the best leader, governor romney, had you been 2, who do you think will handle the economy better? governor romney. number 3, who do you think cares more about you? >> president obama. >> right. >> rose: must be 4 who is better in foreign policy? >> president obama. >> rose: right. >> what would you add to that? those are the basic kind of -- >> well there is a different variations of cares about people, who understands the middle class. i thought all along, governor romney on those questions, those character and trade questions, governor romney needed to do three things. on
they are both appealing to the last little undecideds. and so governor romney is making this case. he's basically saying you go with president obama, it's more of the same. >> rose: more years of what happened and are you not happy with what happened. >> exactly. and go with me and i have a plan. in his closing argument he goes through his five, he's even given some of his items, name, the names of the bills that he would enact. and the president is saying i'm not done yet. he says you know, i'm to the going to give up that fight. and then he goes in his closing argue speech he talks about various people. and he said they need a champion. so he is running as the champion for the middle class. and that is both a message to the base but it's also to those undecided voters. >> rose: romney is running as a champion of woman. >> romney is running as a champion of everyone, he says. and of course that is to deal with the lingering problems from that surreptitiously taped 47%. but he is saying now that he is running as the candidate of change. which taking president obama's tag line from '08
arguments. >> that's right. they're both making their closing arguments. they are all going to the same states. those eight battleground states. ohio is still the granddaddy of them all. governor romney is going there the most of all the battleground states, the same with the president. right now would you have to say that the president has the better electoral map. the polls in more battleground states are favouring him. but romney is doing better in north carolina and florida, and on the early vote he's doing well in those states, doing well in colorado. but the president is doing well in iowa and nevada with the early vote which tells it us a little bit how this thing is starting to break. >> rose: do they have two different views of america that they are appealing to? >> in this last moment they are both appealing to the last little undecideds. and so governor romney is making this case. he's basically saying you go with president obama, it's more of the same. >> rose: more years of what happened and are you not happy with what happened. >> exactly. and go with me and i have a plan.
